The story of the commandant Khawani and his young mujahedeen at three points in history. We first meet them in winter 2000 during the resistance against the Taliban, then again in autumn 2001 when Kabul is captured and Khawani and his men are triumphant, and finally seven years later in an Afghanistan fluctuating between reconstruction and chaos. What has become of the mujahedeen?
